Overview

First Impression

Platinum Play is another case of a casino losing its determination of becoming a great casino. At one time, it was one of the best casinos we had listed in our “Reputable Casino” section – to be renamed as “Accredited Casinos”, these guys were a hit.

They were launched as a Casinomeister Mystery Casino in May 2005, a member of the Fortune Lounge group and really did quite well here – players seemed to enjoy their promotions and loyalty programs. Lest we forget, the Fortune Lounge group had won Best Casino Group of 2003, and they were still going strong.

Over time though, Platinum Play – along with the other Fortune Lounge properties – seemed to have lost their way. They stopped having special promotions, exclusive promos just didn’t happen here anymore. I figured either their affiliate managers were either just too lazy, or they didn’t care much for the Casinomeister community – which was a true shame since they had the opportunity to become something massively great – like 32Red for instance.

As the years went by, they slipped away to the netherworld of online casinos – bought up by Digimedia, moved their affiliate program to Buffalo Partners, and dropped from site out of our forum. What a pity.

Platinum Play is a Microgaming download casino, licensed in Malta, and their support is in South Africa.

Games & Software

Microgaming may be a leader for online casino slot games – that can be debatable since there are some great games coming from other software providers like Netent, Nextgen, and Big Time Gaming. One thing is for certain, Microgaming is the leader for video poker – and these are only available via the their downloadable version.

I am a big video poker fan, and I can attest that the VP games available at Platinum Play are among the best found online – many of which rival the best IGT VP games found at land based casinos. 54 games in all – this is what you’ll find:

Aces & Eights
Aces & Faces (only Microgaming)
All Aces Poker
All American Poker
Bonus Poker
Bonus Poker Deluxe
Bonus Deuces Wild
Deuces & Joker
Deuces Wild
Double Bonus
Double Double Bonus (yeah!!)
Double Joker
Jacks or Better
Joker Poker
Tens or Better

And just about each one of games appears in the following:

Level-Up Video Poker (much like IGT’s Multi-Strike Poker)
4 Play Power Poker
10 Play Power Poker
50 Play Power Poker
100 Play Power Poker

And then they have Progressive Video Poker.

So simply, if you are a VP fan, Platinum Play can and will satisfy your needs.

Casinomeister's Verdict

Platinum Play was once a contender for a great if not best casino award in the past. Now they seem like they are on autopilot. Just another Microgaming casino.
